Blank box at the top of the screen?

Postby brendonwp on Thu Sep 27, 2012 2:42 am

I have a strange blank box that appears at the top of the screen when I start some applications: Virtualbox was the first, but now others have started to do this too. It is very annoying, as it just sits there on all workspaces, and I have to restart to get rid of it. The 'desktop' button makes all the windows go away, but not this one.

My setup is: Mint 13 64-bit Cinnamon 1.4 on a Dell 14z i5 with 6GB RAM.

I've attached a screenshot of my desktop. The box sits just above my browser window. What is it and how to stop this issue please?

Otherwise I am very happy with Cinnamon..

Thanks!

For a workaround, if you haven't found it, take a look here:

and here:
viewtopic.php?f=208&t=103320
(that is CTRL+F2 and type "r" and then ENTER)
